Bonjour & welcome on "The Beautiful Stillness" a blog about literature and the fine art of being a bookworm.
I am Candice, a French twenty-something who loved reading since the age of five. For quite a long time I wished I had my book place on the internet, so one day I created TBS.
This is the side-blog for The Beautiful Stillness
The people of Brazil have something else to cheer about in addition the recent World Cup festivities. Check out the Livraria Cultura bookshop in São Paulo designed by Studio MK-27.
The goal was to create a bookshop that doubled as a meeting place and as these images attest they seem to have done a fine job. The open well-light floor plan allows for a comfortable shopping experience as well as encouraging customers to hang around and enjoy the space.
